I have only a few regrets in my culinary career and one of them is that I did not discover spaghetti squash until later in life! You can do so much with it and the rich, buttery taste makes it a fantastic gluten-free substitute for traditional pasta.
One cup only contains 42 calories and just 0.5 grams of fat! It is also a rich source of fiber, vitamin C, manganese, and vitamin B6!
This recipe, once the spaghetti squash has baked in the over, comes together in less than a minute!
I grew up in an Italian/French household and pasta and dessert were staples. I really love both but as we know they can pile on the pounds. When I can, I try to subsititute healthier ingredients. Spaghetti Squash is really easy to use in just about any dish in place of pasta. A word of advice the trick is to make sure you cook spaghetti squash ompletely before breaking into strands.
The addition of the bok choy and zucchini not only makes this dish healthier but also satisfying.
I prefer it hot but is also great cold.
